Way of the Horse

Equine Archetypes for Self-Discovery

Sep 17 - Sep 22 2017 Rhinebeck, NY

We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

Discover how to bring horse wisdom into your life with trainer Linda Kohanov and thrive in the herds you run in.

For thousands of years, riders have experienced “the way of the horse,” but you don’t have to be a rider to benefit from the wisdom of these amazing animals.

Through thought provoking exercises, reflection, and lively group exploration—guided by horse trainer Linda Kohanov—you learn to bring “horse wisdom” into your home, workplace, school, and other human environments.

You discover how equine archetypes can help you enhance mindfulness, develop assertiveness and nonpredatory power, foster creativity, deal with conflict, and heighten intuition. You also visit a nearby stable to witness how horses can enhance your energetic awareness and help you thrive in the family and community herds you run in.

Eloquent and provocative, this workshop is for anyone who wishes to benefit from horse-inspired insights on personal development, spirituality, and leadership, including experienced riders and those who have never been near a horse.

More Information

There will be no riding, just observation.

A portion of the program will take place at nearby Southlands Foundation and participants are encouraged to carpool. If you are able and willing to be a driver please send an email to Rose Hues at Omega at roseh@eomega.org. Omega will compensate drivers.
